Chase has been sending out targeted letters where you can get 4x points when using your Southwest c0-branded credit card. Even though I have this credit card I did not receive anything in the mail. However, I read about this promotion on another BoardingArea blog MJ on Travel and was able to enroll my card successfully! This offer is for purchases (based on your offer) between April 15 and July 15, 2015. You must register prior to
There are actually four separate offers and I actually found this out after I enrolled for the first offer I saw. I then tried enrolling for another one, but it wouldn’t let me enroll and instead took me back to the Congratulations page for the original offer I enrolled for. I am not sure if I was in fact targeted for the offer I happened to register for, or if you are stuck with the first one registered for.
I suggest picking the bonus you prefer best and trying it out first. The four bonuses are:
- 4x points (2 bonus + 2 existing) on Southwest Airline purchases – enrollment link
- 4x points (2 bonus + 2 existing) on purchases at Southwest partner hotels and airlines – enrollment link
- Spend $5,000, receive 3,000 bonus points – enrollment link
- Spend $8,000, receive 4,000 bonus points – enrollment link
I typically do not use my Southwest credit card, however, I need to make a reservations for my husband using my companion pass and it is an international flight so taxes are high. Using this card will get me 200 points. With my Chase Sapphire Preferred card I’ll only earn 100 points and I do not value Ultimate Reward points to be double than Southwest points. While this is a minimal number of points we are talking about, if you have many upcoming flights to book this could work out nice!
